This Yankees ball boy stuck with a tough bounce off the tarp for the defensive gem of the day
Sure, being a Major League ball boy has its perks: getting to sit on a big league field, wearing a uniform, the eternal gratitude of your bullpen. But it's also a solemn responsibility. Armed with only a glove and a batting helmet, they take their position -- the last line of defense between the baseball game and complete foul-ball anarchy.
The catch had it all: the reflexes to make the grab, the presence of mind to follow the Golden Rule of Foul Balls -- always find an adorable young fan in your area -- and the attitude to sit back down and eat sunflower seeds like it was all in a day's work. Truly, this is a ball boy to which all others should aspire.
